Ripped Jeans and Day Dreams

It’s amazing what you can do with a cheese grater and a sharp pair of scissors. I’ve never really been the crafty sort (sure I’ve had aspirations but my pom pom flowers come out more like vaginas and I still have trouble threading needles. Trashing things to make them look better though? Now you’re speaking my language.

It’s pretty nye on impossible to find a pair of jeans that you like the fit of. Hell, even just a pair that you don’t want to set fire to the second you slip them on. So while I liked my light blue jeans there was just something a little bit lacking. Something that could easily be solved by raiding my kitchen.  I really wish I could say there was a method to the whole madness but really the only problem I had was not getting completely carried away. It really was the best thing I ever did as it gave them a whole new lease of life and felt like getting a brand new pair of jeans that am already wearing with a bunch of my favourite staples.

What about you? Ever tried any upcycling?
